CACV is 75 — Let’s Celebrate!
CACV is celebrating its 75th Anniversary and we’re hosting CACV75, a free community celebration featuring a visual arts exhibition, art sales, live performances, and more! The event aims to celebrate the many accomplishments of the Community Arts Council of Vancouver since its inception in 1946.
CACV is the oldest Arts Council in North America, and we have a lot to show for our years! CACV75 will highlight key accomplishments, including establishing civic theatres, museums, galleries, music schools, contributing to civic design, creating cultural spaces, and preserving historical sites. CACV has advocated for initiatives, programs, and facilities that are instrumental to the arts in Vancouver, and has played a vital role in providing facilities and access to arts in Vancouver for over seven decades.
The CACV75 will include performances by:
- Emma Parkinson and Roger Parton (of City Opera Vancouver)
- Saint James Music Academy
Hosted by CBC Early Edition’s Stephen Quinn
